Winner of the Bare rucksack announced!

I've been carrying this secret around all long weekend, and I can't bear it anymore. Read on to find out who won the animal-friendly rucksack from the good people at Bare Backpacks. You never know ... it could be you!!

Bare rucksackAs per usual with any contest on Unleashed - there were many, many, many excellent entries. One of them rhymed, some of them were highly amusing (this was my favourite), and most all of them were original and really inspiring.

To win, all you had to do was tell me what you'd be doing at your school/uni/TAFE/juvenile detention centre in 2013 to make it a kinder place for animals. Simple really. The hard part was choosing the winner!

In the end it came down to two entries - one by Mary6 and one by april-san.

Blue crayons taste the best.Mary's entry was:
"I am going to ask my principal to change the uniform code sheet to say leather or fake leather black school shoes so that my fellow students know they can wear a cruelty free uniform without needing to ask permission."
That was so good it made me wish I could go back to school and not eat so many crayons do the same thing! Unfortunately though Mary - your entry was just too long! Entries had to be 30 words or less. Ooh, harsh, I know :(

BUT!! That IS good news for April who has scored a fully vegan (and fully sick, bro) Bare rucksack with her entry:
"With my uni's Vegetarian Society I'm going to produce and distribute a 'Veg Campus Guide', detailing every vegetarian and vegan option at every vendor on campus to facilitate ethical choices."

Put simply - April is going to make a list of veg food at her uni. Not only will that help students at her uni make kinder choices between lectures; it's something that even YOU could do wherever you're studying this year!

If you missed out this time round - don't sweat it. You can still go in the draw to win free Unleashed stickers. 50 lucky winners are drawn each month - you gotta like those odds!

I hate to be the one bringing this up ... but in just a few short weeks, school holidays are going to be over :( That's a bitter pill to swallow, but our latest giveaway will make the end of the holidays just that little bit easier. Find out what's up for grabs and how to enter!

Whether you're at school, uni or TAFE - you're going to need a bag to carry around all your gear.

But don't sweat it, because the crew at Bare Backpacks have got your back in 2013, with their line of animal-friendly backpacks. Oh and p.s. They're sweatshop-free too ;)

Bare Backpacks

In their own words, Bare Backpacks make great backpacks for great people. They're making some seriously good-looking packs from their base in Oregon, USA - and there are no animal products in the making of.
